Usually I read manga and books for my law school.
My current readings are: A book about Japanese history and culture. I'm reading Lolita again, lol. The rest of the books are for study.

I'm currently raeding the Graphic Novel Paper Girls which is pretty great and is written by the writer of Saga which is my favorite graphic novel and has my favorite artist Fiona Staples working on it as well.

Hey! It's awesome...the concepts he introduced into the space and automotive industry alone made me fascinated with him though I never really knew much about him as a person or entrepreneur. His childhood was interesting and I related with him on his curiosity especially when it came to computers as a lad. His startups and sometimes harsh, though progressive, methods of pushing his businesses forward continue to astound me, I'm particularly excited to see where things go with Neuralink being someone heavily into Transhumanism :)

Now how's Paper Girls? I've heard of that and Saga just haven't read them yet :/

That's awesome, any  particular harsh methods of pushing his business you could summarize? I think Elon is super inspiring and I hope him well in his businesses although I think Neuralink is a bit too much much I do look forward to the Tranhumanist evolution.

Paper Girls is pretty good, very different to anything else I've read and Saga is amazing all time favorite and best written\drawn graphic novel I've read to date.

I suppose harsh in terms of (at times) treatment towards employees however that is necessary when running innovative companies that could change the world. He definitely separates himself from emotion and humanity at times to ensure business is pushing forward which in turn leads to cutting fat more often than a typical company, even if it was someone who was a lifelong friend or a person who dedicated their life to his company for years if not over a decade. He's still brilliant though and certainly let his imagination and visions of the future transform his companies. Out of curiosity what about Neuralink do you hesitate on?

And that's awesome! I gotta get caught up, I have a list of graphic novels and mangas I have to read before I die lol. I think the old Hellsing mangas are next on my list.

Um from the tiny amount that I know of Neuralink is that they plan to implant chips in brains so humans can compete with A.I.'s but I don't think implanting a chip that will let advertisers get even more data on you is a good idea

The Histories of Herodotus

I have a hard time with these ancient histories. So much of it is obviously based on myth, so I have the instinct to be skeptical, but I also have a good ability to rationalize how something mentioned could be true or rooted in something true. Great overall though. It's going to take me some time to finish it.

True.. I'm more interested in cellular repair, brainwave monitoring, blood flow correction, etc. If cybernetics can prevent things such as cancerous tumors, aneurysms, etc. that would be a more productive approach. Also if brainwaves and electric patterns can be replicated, can the human thought and "mind's eye" concept be visualized in an interface. 

Just cool, crazy things that may one day be a possibility :) huge interest.

My only problem with this is that these technologies will only be developed if they can prove profitable. No matter how much a physical good or technology might benefit humanity, it only gets developed if someone can make a quick buck offa it.

The only exceptions are pipe dream projects like asteroid mining. I feel as if people like Musk are more content to ponder imaginary problems than try to solve the ones we're actually dealing with.

it's pretty good, I'm starting to see how much popular fiction was inspired by it, like Half-Life 2, The Matrix, V for Vendetta, etc.

While true I think that startups in the hands of the wealthy are a good thing because to them it's about power over the industry before profit, leading to breakthroughs in technology. And yes, Musk is a perfect example because he seemingly doesn't give a crap about money and more-so making sure his visions are put in place and the whole world accepts them.

I might check out the book Siddhartha. I heard about it on some random bbs site. Don't really know what to expect but wikipedia says it's a book about self-discovery. Seems interesting enough to me!

I really want to read Lovecraft's books... Meanwhile I'm reading the "Introduction to the programming with Python - Nilo Coutinho Menezes"
